Murray, "The Elephant in Hosanna-Tabor"

My former student, Brian Murray, has recently published an insightful paper on the Hosanna-Tabor case, "The Elephant in Hosanna-Tabor" (link) which explores the question -- which Hosanna-Tabor did not have to answer definitively -- of how to define, or identify, "religious" institutions.  Check it out.

"What is Truth?"

While it may be true that "opponents of the decision generally claimed that The First Amendment does not enable religious organizations and churches to "stand above the law", those members who are following Truth Himself, are in communion with The Law, and there is no lie in Him.

That being said, I could not help but notice that on page 20, http://www.ewtn.com/pope francis/election/inaugurationBooklet.pdf The Filioque was missing, hopefully lost in translation, as The Spirit of Truth, proceeds from The Father and The Son.

See page 20 where you will not see The Filioque.

Sorry Professor Garnett! Feel free to edit my comments on restoring The Filioque.

ND, I am not exactly sure why you are talking about the Filioque, but it was included in the Latin creed sung at the mass. See pg. 54: http://www.vatican.va/news_services/liturgy/libretti/2013/20130319_inizio-ministero-petrino.pdf

Catholic Law Student, it appears The Filioque is missing, and I see now, not lost in translation, on page 20. I am glad to see it restored, however, in The Creed!
